“Nice restaurant but nothing special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

The food was good, but the sideorder of vegetables was over cooked. The staff was nice and the service was good. Located on a quiet side street.

“Surprising!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

This restaurant is thankfully slightly off the tourist-path. The waiters were helpful, friendly, and prompt. The food was wonderful - can't remember the exact names, but we had Pollo con Patate and Tagliatelle con Gamberi e Zucchini. All in all around 40 Euro for two people, so a good price for the area.

“The Best Pizza in the World!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Traveling to Lago di Garda in the fall, we decided to stay in Riva and we take day trips to different places around the lake and in that region. One day we drove to Sirmione and for lunch we found that little place of the beaten track. We wanted to sit outside and the waiter was very accommodating. He set up a table in the sun with table cloth and napkins and we sat right along the stonewall with flowers and bushes growing out on the top. The service was excellent and the food out of this world. My husbands seafood pasta looked and tasted scrumptious and my pizza was the best I have ever had. I have eaten a lot of pizza over the years, in the USA, Canada, Germany and of course Italy...but this pizza tasted just so wonderful and it sure was the best in this world so far!

“Good food, friendly service, no rip off!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

During our recent week long stay in Sirmione we ate here three times. We ate out every night of our holiday & this was by far the best restaurant we used. The food was good, prices reasonable, staff friendly. It's a family run place, therefore their reputation probably means far more to them & it shows. All the other places we ate at we were invisible & actually felt like we were an inconvenience, but not here, and that is why we went back. It's a pretty place, good ambience, well positioned - just far enough away from the main square which was a bit too noisy for us. Plus in the square by the castle there were street performers of dubious talent, & we really didn't want to have to listen to that either. Therefore this lovely, deservedly popular restaurant gets a big thumbs up from us!
